Thousands of Romanians trying to get home as Europe enters a coronavirus lockdown were yesterday stranded on the border between Austria and Hungary – after Hungarian authorities announced they would end transit through their territory. Freight trucks have been allowed to cross the border, but as many as 3,500 Romanians were stuck in tailbacks stretching for miles from the border crossing. A corridor would be opened for passenger vehicles to cross Hungary later, said Romanian Foreign Minister, with transit to be strictly supervised by Romanian police. Hungary shut its borders to foreign travellers from Tuesday and is allowing only Hungarian citizens to enter the country.
